How to check for a missing e-clip is found in Bob Ballew's musings 

If the e-clip is missing, usually accelerating to about 25 mph, shifting 
into neutral, blip the throttle, and shift back into drive will cause 
the PowerGlide to up-shift, but not always.  If the teeth on the 
governor gear were missing, I wonder where they went?  Lots of very 
small passages in the PowerGlide valve body.
